It's another summer in Glen Allan, Mississippi for fourteen-year-old Robbie Hendrick. His wayward mother has run off again fearing a breakdown, and he's left to pass the days caring for his half-brother, Fess. But he's as hopeful as ever that his dream of a family will be realized this year. As Robbie and Fess burn the days together, Robbie's dream becomes closer than ever before. His older brother Lucas returns to the home and postcards begin to arrive from their mother, promising that she's better and that she'll return home soon. But Robbie knows the futility of keeping faith in promises. As the deep days and nights begin to pass without his mother's return, and with the ever-present threat of social services closing in on the brothers, Robbie must face the fact that he may just lose the only family he's ever had: Fess.
